    In preparation for our state writing test my students are going to need time in the computer lab to practice typing. I was not sure if there were any good sites they could practice on. This is my first year teaching third and also this is the year that this grade level takes this assessment for the first time.

    I don't know if you can do this or not. This is a suggestion:
    I love playing this typing game called Typer Shark. You have to type the letters or words on the sharks and piranhas I don't know how you would get it on your computers or if they can play online.

    edit: I don't know if this typing game would fit well with your 3rd graders. The sharks and piranhas do eat the person if they miss the typing but it is hidden by bubbles and the shark takes the diver away. 6th graders would love this game.

    The BBC has some great sites, and this is no exception. Obviously I'm much older than your son, but I'm loving the heck out of this site.
